Tottenham Hotspur vs Ajax Amsterdam Preview

Tottenham Hotspur vs Ajax Amsterdam

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Date: 30th April 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Tottenham and Ajax are the two underdogs who have taken this season’s Champions League by surprise and they will both be looking at a shot at glory when they face each other in this game.

Spurs had to overcome arguably the best team in England in Manchester City at the quarterfinals to reach this stage and their fans can be permitted to start dreaming of the finals if they play like they have done for much of the knockout round.

They beat Borussia Dortmund home and away before beating Manchester City in a crazy all-English quarterfinal last time out and fans will expect them to curtail this very creative Ajax team in this first leg like they did against Manchester City.

Ajax have taken advantage of being seen as underdogs to reach this stage of the Champions League.  The Dutch giants have got their fans dreaming of the glory days when they dominated European football.

Progress has been steady for the Dutch giants who reached the Europa League final in 2017.

They have some of the World’s best youngsters in their ranks who may not play with them next season so they would feel they should leave the club on a high by winning the Champions League.

Ajax have won their last four matches, while Tottenham have won all 4 of their matches at their new stadium

Bookmakers have priced Tottenham up as odds-against favourites to come out on top in this opening leg while Ajax are being respected by oddsmakers after their impressive performance against Juventus.

Goal markets point to a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Fernando Llorente is favourite to score the opening goal of the game followed by Lassina Traore.
